"Capcom has an excellent line up of games hitting consoles during the first half of 2009, and they've got the Resident Evil 5 and Street Fighter IV-filled press release to prove it.

It's not all about the fifth Resident Evil and the fourth Street Fighter, but those two titles do make up the brunt of Capcom's early 2009 line up. Due out March 13th and February 17th respectively, the two guaranteed top-sellers are sure to generate numbers far in excess of the rest of Capcom's scheduled releases.

Along with the two heavy hitters, Capcom also has Dead Rising: Chop Til Ya Drop for the Wii heading our way in February and the motorcycle racing stylings of MotoGP for the Wii in March. Rounding out the period we have the digital download title Flock! and the Bionic Commando remake for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC, both of which lack specific dates but are expected to drop during the first half of the year.

With two huge titles and a handful of other assorted goodness, it should be a rather nice 2009 for the lovely folks at Capcom."

CAPCOM TO DELIVER STELLAR LINE UP IN THE FIRST HALF OF 2009
Resident Evil® 5, Street Fighter® IV, Bionic Commando®, Dead RisingTM: Chop Till You Drop, FLOCK! and MotoGP for Wii Ready to Dominate the Console World

Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, has today confirmed that six of its upcoming titles will be released within the first half of 2009. The line-up demonstrates Capcom’s commitment to pursuing a multi-platform strategy while growing its portfolio of titles and includes the latest installments of some of gaming’s most cherished franchises.

Throughout 2008, Capcom was at the forefront of digital download titles and is set to continue this trend into 2009 and beyond. Capcom’s first downloadable game of the year, FLOCK!, is scheduled for release in early 2009 and will be available for Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®Network and Windows PC platforms. FLOCK! sees players take control of a UFO that is tasked with herding animals to its mothership through a variety of interactive levels utilizing physics-based gameplay. With over 50 levels in single player and co-op modes and a simple yet powerful level editor to extend the experience, FLOCK!’s unique theme, clever humor and easy pick-up-and-play controls will ensure a new twist on the puzzle genre.

The Street Fighter® series makes a very welcome return with Street Fighter® IV, which comes to the Xbox 360 and Sony Computer Entertainment’s PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system on February 17, 2009, followed by a Windows PC version set for release at a later date. The series which has amassed combined global sales of over 25 million units aims to put the fun back into the fighting genre and reignite the passion of the Street Fighter II era. Everything that made the legendary Street Fighter II a global hit is back in Street Fighter IV, with the addition of new characters (including fighters added just for the console version of the game), special moves and gameplay elements, providing challenges for even the most seasoned Street Fighter pro.

Infecting gamers and completing Capcom’s list of releases for February is Dead Rising™: Chop Till You Drop for the Wii, scheduled for release on February 27. Based on the smash Xbox 360 game (over one million copies sold to date), the humor and challenge that made the original a hit with gamers remains, while many core elements have been totally redesigned for the Wii platform and audience, taking zombie bashing to a whole new level. With the added functionality of the Wii Remote™, players will be able to shake off zombie attacks and swing and throw dozens of makeshift weapons (everything from chainsaws to baseball bats, soccer balls to café umbrellas) in order to survive.

Gamers around the globe have already written Friday the 13th, March 2009 on their calendars in blood red ink in order to mark the release of Resident Evil® 5. One of the industry’s most successful franchises brings the next generation of fear to Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 systems. Resident Evil 5 promises to set a new standard in action gaming with amazing graphics and both online and split-screen co-operative gameplay on a single console.
Also scheduled for release in March is MotoGP™ for the Wii. Due to hit retail in the middle of March to coincide with the pre-season activity for the 2009 MotoGP™ season, the title turns the Wii Remote into a set of virtual handlebars as players compete across the three race classes in single races, a full championship or a series of challenge stages. Different handling models and AI rider characteristics allow ease of entry for riders of all skills whether a seasoned bike racing fan or new to the genre.

Completing this impressive line up is Bionic Commando, the true sequel to the retro classic with an injection of next gen power, coming within the first half of the year. The title will be initially available for gamers on Xbox 360 and Sony Computer Entertainment’s PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, with the Windows PC version following shortly afterwards. Bionic Commando harnesses the power of the latest generation of hardware to fully exploit the swing mechanic that made the original title so unique. Using the powers of the bionic arm to swing between towering skyscrapers, punch cars, pummel opponents and grab distant enemies, players can gain a tactical advantage to progress through the compelling single player campaign and take on all comers in online multiplayer modes.

I can hardly wait for Dead Rising: Chop till you drop. AFAIK, Capcom will aim to have the 100 zombies on-screen in the Wii version, just like the 360 original

Any chance RE 5 gets to the Wii eventually?

It would be nice if they showed some of MotoGP Wii.

Don't care about Dead Rising, maybe if they delayed it to put the camera back in.

I'm buying a 360 for RE5 & Bionic Commando. RE4 is still a game I play regulary (and in my opinion its as fresh today as when it was originally released on the GC).

Street Fighter 4 I'm on the fence about, I know the reviews for the arcade version has been staggering but I just not really into the style anymore. I'm more of a King of Fighters guy anyway.

I can't remember the source, but there was an article written somewhere that basically quoted the creator of RE5 saying that it's just not fit for the Wii and could never happen, and the Wii is not his target and blah blah.

FAIL.

I played the RE5 demo on my 360 and if they did it on the Wii with the RE4 Wii engine it'd be AWESOME. I miss aiming with the Wiimote
